"Trivia question: What is the most cited work in the mathematical literature? With an estimated 40,000 citations, the Handbook of Mathematical Functions may well be it. Edited by Milton Abramowitz and Irene Stegun and released by the National Bureau of Standards in 1964, the Handbook was the result of a ten-year project to compile essential information on the special functions of applied mathematics (e.g., Bessel functions, hypergeometric functions, and orthogonal polynomials) for use in...

This paper is an extension and revision of a previous paper by Rosa and Cohen. It is now by far the most complete and thorough study of the subject that has yet been published. The authors have taken great pains to bring it thoroughly up to date, and have made a critical study of nearly all the recent papers on the subject. The comparisons of the results obtained by various authors and the invcstigations of the convergence of the various series that have been proposed have cleared up the whole... Topics: inductance, Condensed matter, electronic structure, electrical, magnetic, and optical properties
The table of attenuation as a function of vane angle gives the attenuation in decibels produced by an angular displacement of the vane of a rotary-vane attenuator assuming ideal behavior of the attenuator.The attenuations for vane angles corresponding to Topic: Wave guides.
The two formulae employed by Coffin give results in very close agreement, and the only question remaining is whether the two closely-agreeing formulae are as accurate when applied to the coil in question as they appear to be. In deriving the formulae the current is supposed to be uniformly distributed over the surface of the cylinder, whereas the coil is actually wound with 661 turns of round wire having a diam. of 0.0634 cm. and insulated by a covering 0.0030 cm. thick. The author shows that... Topics: electromagnetic induction, Electrical instruments and techniques

The specific heat of chemically pure copper between 0 degrees and 50 degrees C. has been redetermined with precision on account of its importance in some determinations of the mechanical equivalent of heat which are being undertaken, the thermal capacity of the copper in these experiments amounting to 1 or 2 % of the whole. A new method is adopted in which 50 m, of copper, wire 2.5 mm. in diam. serves the fourfold function of being the test specimen, the calorimeter itself, the heater, and the...

A method of testing instrument transformers by means of ordinary commercial testing instruments is described. It has to be remembered that from the practical point of view we need only take account of these errors in ratio or phase angle which produce a visible error in the reading of the indicating wattmeter. A wattmeter is taken and used in such a way that differences in ratio or phase angle of the transformer being tested and a standard transformer may be most readily detected. The method is...
